Choose from Azure Kinect, Realsense 415 and 435, Kinect V2 (XBOX ONE). EF EVE™ Volumetric capture extends the regular features 3D cameras have. It is the number one choice for all professionals wanting to use multiple camera setups.
STEP-BY-STEP – VOLUMETRIC CAPTURE
4x Azure Kinect Setup
The following is an example of volumetric capture workflow using 4 Azure Kinect cameras. The person is standing in the middle of one square meter size volumetric capture stage with four cameras facing her at 90 degree angle to each other. This type of setup is the most popular as it is the best quality and price value. It allows to create 360 degrees pointlcloud covering the whole body of the person.
STEP 1 – SETUP
4x Azure Kinect setup with 1×1 meter volumetric capture stage
All cameras are cable synchronized and running in pairs on a network of two computers. Via Server computer the user is able to control the whole network of devices. With EF EVE™ Volcapp you can build a powerful and very dynamic volumetric capture system. 2 Volcapp subscriptions are needed to run 4 camera setup.
STEP 2 – VOLCAPP
Two Volcapp applications are running as Server and Client on a Network
EF EVE™ Volcapp is known for having the most complete pack of settings for a robust volumetric capture. With over 14 advanced features as auto-calibration and real-time pointcloud filtering it is a power-packed software for your Azure Kinect.
STEP 3 – CREATOR
Files are combined into a single volumetric video
Two EVE files are combined to produce a 360 degree overlapping pointcloud. EF EVE™ Creator is the ultimate tool to edit, improve the quality and export volumetric video recordings. A number of post-processing features will enable you to create watertight mesh finish and optimize it for fast web browser experience.
STEP 4 – PLATFORM
Uploading exported glTF to the web based Platform
EF EVE™ Platform is an advanced volumetric video and 3D models distribution system. Built in 3D editor application will enable you to make the last touches before publishing. Users are able to share the content with the community and beyond. Embed volumetric video 3D player to your website or share on Facebook and Twitter.
STEP 5 – MOBILE

EF EVE™ Volcapp features
The most complete set of functionality in the market. It will enhance your 3D camera capabilities. From capture and evaluation to software development.
Pointcloud calibration into a single coordinate system is the most important part of the volumetric capture process.
EF EVE™ Volcapp automatically detects markers and uses advanced algorithms to estimate the exact positions of 3D cameras. Print calibration markers on an A4 size sheet of paper and follow tutorials in our Help Center. Four cameras calibration usually takes around 5 minutes.
Capture only what you need – remove the environment
Bounding box enables a quick and simple pointcloud removal. You can adjust the box to meet the size of your capture stage. System will record only what is inside of the bounding box creating much smaller file size and less work later. Also we made some presets for standard volumetric capture stage dimensions.
Cleaning pointclouds in real time is a must for today’s volumetric video capture
We created a set of advanced and sensitive 3D filters to produce the most accurate pointlcouds possible. As pointcloud quality depends on the distance, object materials and environmental conditions the real time pointcloud filtering is essential. You will be able to quickly test and find settings for the best results.
